a small Blog about nothing when I have something to say

Why am I here?
"You are not just here to take up air." This is what the preachers say. "Save the poor, the heathen and all those less; that is your purpose."
But are these really my purposes, the purposes for which I was made?
A sweet old lady told me once that our purpose was just to be nice to others, but my wife says I am an ass-hole sometimes. Have I failed at my purpose? I have not saved anyone either. Does this mean I have failed at life, and if I am here to help that guy, what is his purpose? He could just not exist and then I could too.
You know the reason I had my kids was to get stuff done around the house, and support me when they are older of course. I am just kidding, but wouldn't that be sick? No, I really had them so they could be nice to each other, but that clearly has not worked out. So what do I do with them now?
Seriously, we just had our children to love. And If I being evil (just ask my wife) have my children just to love - How much better can GOD do?
Did he make you just to love you?
Just to have a relationship with you; to walk in the garden and visit with you?
